Mental Health Spotlight: Miley Cyrus

Mental Health Spotlight: Miley Cyrus

by | May 8, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 comments


As you all may know, either from hearing me speak, seeing my writing, talking to me personally- I am passionate about a few things.  One of those things is stopping the stigma on mental health… and even more so- talking about our mental health.  Luckily, I’m not the first one, and I hope to not be the last one who is putting my two cents in on the importance of talking about our mental health and how taking care of mental health is so important.

This blog is dedicated to Miley Cyrus who has come out and talked about her own struggles with mental health.  Other than having great hair, she obviously sees how talking about her own struggles with depression can help other people- if not to go to therapy- to at least feel NOT ALONE.  People may look perfect, be famous, rich, and still struggle with depression, sleeping all day, insomnia, anxiety, you name it- famous and rich people got it too.

Depression is ugly- of course there are different shades of gray- that are not just erotic… They can be gray fields of nothingness.  They can be deep dark holes of sadness, crying, and not showering for a days on end.  It can be- functioning, going to work, coming home, and just not connecting with the people around you.  Whatever it is, it needs to be addressed.

I encourage you to seek out a professional if only for a few sessions to help you get out of the funk, or to the core of the issue.  Sometimes it can be organic, but sometimes it can be rooted in ideas we have about ourselves or the world.  Sometimes we need help figuring it out, and that’s ok.  #stopthestigma #itstimetotalk
